Preventing unwanted litters before access to spAY & 


Due to industry wide veterinarian shortages, obtaining spay/neuter services for your pet may be difficult. Until you are able to have your pet spayed/neutered, below are some tips to preventing mating and unwanted pregnancy/litters:

  • Implement the use of wraps and diapers to prevent reproductive contact. There is an array of options for both male and females including those that are washable.

  • Keep male and female pets of the same species separate, especially when you are not around to monitor their interactions. This includes animals that are genetically related such as a mother and one of her offspring or a brother and sister. Although the animals may be from the same bloodline, it does not mean that they are unable to reproduce. Furthermore, inbred offspring are more likely to have hereditary abnormalities, higher mortality rates and lower growth rates.

  • Do not let your pet(s) roam free in the neighborhood. Keep your pet(s) of the opposite sex away from other pets as it may result in an unwanted pregnancy/litters. 

  • Both dogs and cats can reproduce multiple litters a year, so even if your female pet has offspring, it does not mean that additional litters will stop.

  • Schedule your pet’s spay/neuter appointment as quickly as possible to prevent unwanted behavior and unwanted pregnancy/litters.
